OK, anyone remember Ben's Shrimp in Chicago? Is it still there? It was on North Avenue at Cherry St. last time I was there, that had to be 15-20 years ago.
You could get deep fried breaded shrimp by the pound and they served them in recycled coffee bags. We'd get a pound or two and head East a little farther and eat em' at North Avenua beach.
I haven't found anywhere to get shrimp or fish like that to go anywhere lately. Is Ben's still there? If not, where can you buy shrimp and/or fish by the pound all cooked up and ready to "snack" on?
